Over the Edge Radio

Negativland

Over The Edge Radio Archive (Seeland 031). Negativland's live mix radio show "Over The Edge" has been the longest-running block of free-form audio collage in radio history. With Negativland's Don Joyce at the helm, the weekly show was broadcast from KPFA FM in Berkeley California from 1981 to 2015. His death on July 22, 2015 closed a very large and long chapter in the group's history.

Here is how Don and Negativland described Over The Edge in texts drawn from over three decades of promoting the show:

"OTE's weekly themed mixes are made live and spontaneously on the air from a variety of formats and equipment used to do live sound cut ups and collage while mixing, including the frequent use of the now long dead analog technology of radio broadcast cart machines. On each themed episode of OTE there is a plan and there is no plan. Existing within the parallel universe of the Universal Media Netweb, the OTE mix consists of found sounds of many kinds from many sources put together on the run as the continuous audio collage progresses, along with live electronics (often from our Boopers), live sound processing, and all sorts of reccuring themes, topics and characters. Some of the shows involve all of Negativland, while some involve others outside of our group who participate semi-regularly. Beyond those, there are regular solo show broadcasts by Negativland member Don Joyce, who is the FCC license holder and responsible for filling the radio slot each week. All in all, if you like Negativland, you will like these shows, no matter who is involved, as they all maintain a "Negativ" touch based on our live mixing techniques. OTE often employs “Receptacle Programming,” which means you. Phone callers are punched into our mix with no warning. Call 510-848-4425 to deposit your programming. When your phone stops ringing, you’re on the air. Don’t say 'hello'."

A good overview of Over The Edge, Negativland, and Don Joyce's legacy can be found at this link.

Don's detailed 1995 essay about "Over The Edge."

For an informative bio on Negativland's past, present, and future, try this link.

Besides Negativland's many studio recordings, over the years a small selection of Over The Edge shows have been carefully edited into CD releases, often with elaborate packaging, and can be found here.

For updates on what the group is currently up to try Negativland's Facebook page.

NOTE 1: This archive began in September of 2015 by posting 941 three-to-five-hour-long episodes of Over The Edge from Don’s own personal air checks. That's over 3200 hours of live radio. There are still gaps in this archive to be filled over time (especially the early years. The 2015 shows will go live soon), so please contact Negativland at ote@negativland if you have any shows that we are missing. When you do, put "OTE" in the subject line. Our spam filters are set on high, and anything not having that tag will be junked. We're figuring that spam robots are not yet sophisticated enough to understand this paragraph, so we should be safe for a while.

NOTE 2: Individual show descriptions found here are mostly written by Don, but if a show description is missing and you’d like to contribute one, write it up as a "review" of the episode and let us know that you posted it. We are working on new and better ways to search this archive, and if you have ideas about that, drop us a line. And if you are that person who listens to every single show up here, however many years it takes you, please tell us!

NOTE 3: From 1981 to 1985, Over The Edge was on Sunday nights from 2am to 7pm. From 1985 onwards, the show has been on Thursday nights from midnight until either 3am or 5am, depending on which week of the month it was. The show was never on for the first week of each month, which is why there are never 52 shows in any given year.

NOTE 4: Though Over The Edge and Receptacle Programming continues to exist, evolve, and is still broadcasting each week on KPFA FM, this archive consists of the episodes helmed by Don Joyce. Once we have all of 2015 up, it will end on the episode broadcast immediately after his passing, "There Is No Don."

Over the Edge: Untitled Negativland Live Mix: "An Experiment of Sorts". Originally aired on July 6th, 1981 on KPFA radio. Featuring Negativland. Runtime 01:33:25. These early 80s OTE shows were recorded onto reel-to-reel recording tape. We couldn't afford to buy enough tape to record every show and keep the recordings, so Don would edit out the best bits and use the rest of the tape to record the following weeks show. So that's why all these early shows are partial only. "My...

Dickie Diamond hosts a no-loser game for receptacle callers. Contestants punch the category button on their phone, the wheel is spun, and they win whatever it stops on. Categories are limited to ice cream, cars, and dates with rock stars. This innovative but never before tried format ends in technical chaos, and the show launches itself into space. There, we hear many parts of "Electric Life", an early 80s studio piece made mostly out of OTE from that period. The Weatherman and his...

Now here's something for everyone! The whole group shows up again to try out a record idea live. It's mostly about the Weatherman and what he's really like and what he really likes and what he really DOESN'T LIKE! Lots and lots and lots of live, improvised sex music. Eat it raw here, before it turns into a puny little CD. Parental guidance suggested.

The Weatherman shows up with his two bodyguards and a power book user to celebrate the official release of "The Willsaphone Stupid Show" double CD. This is one big on-air party, copyrighted crowd in the background and all. There's ham jamming, CB remoting, green slime punching, an extremely rare appearance of the OTE Wheel of Fortune, and jokes made up right on the spot. They don't come any more crowded than this. -- Don Joyce

A slim but true premise (we can’t get the weatherman to go on tour with us because he’s lazy) produces surprisingly interesting results. Negativland’s forcefully Scottish manager, Paul McGoonis, (Mark) and his wife Penny (Alicia) attempt to encourage, persuade, harass and otherwise convince the reluctant Weatherman to get off his charismatic duff, get on the bus, and do some stuff. Dr. Oslow Norway takes a more clinical approach. But in fact, the Weatherman is in top form as we all...

Almost all music from beginning to end, with several guests on instruments, the Weatherman, live and on a thousand tapes, drenched in club soda as usual, holds on to his lead vocalist position throughout.

However, as we launch, huge hums are heard and we spend the first hour and a half working on our equipment on air with the indespensable x-ray help of the Weatherman who assists us on the phone.

We begin where we left off with The Weatherman commenting on Bob Dylan. Then continuing on with more indisputable evidence of Satan's intrusion into all varieties pop & rock music. With preacher selected examples galore, from Heavy Metal to spiritual ditties, the insidious phenomenon of backmasking makes all music dangerous to your forward listening ears. Avoid all music until played backwards. And what's worse, readings from straight-ahead rock lyrics prove the point.

Just about exactly as it was broadcast on August 16th, 2015 with minimal trimming--NCN (Phineas Narco) appearing live, and solo, on the 'Day of Don (Joyce Unto the World)' all-day Negativland / Don Joyce tribute show on KFJC: Remembering the great talent and work of Don Joyce who curated 'Over the Edge' on KPFA for 35 years. We collected some choice rarities and pieces not heard for quite some time from Over the Edge and Negativland and composed them 'conversationally' using Don's own handed...

The following audio clip is taken from one of Negativland’s Over The Edge radio shows from 1993 and it is called ‘A Piddle Diddle Disneyland’. In this episode, the group, under their Firesign Theater-inspired names, take a tour of the Happiest Place On Earth while ‘Rex Everything’ reads parts of his “unpublishable” guide book with The Weatherman belly aching and stepping on gum. ….and in THIS clip, they toddle right through ‘The Enchanted Tiki Room’. If this makes you feel...

In honor of the influx of Over The Edge shows originally done by Negativland member Don Joyce to this Archive ( https://archive.org/details/ote ), I’m slapping up an Over The Edge show that I doubt that be included in that collection. The Willsaphone Stupid Show was a two-part OTE episode that centered around recordings The Weatherman made of his family over the years and was later made into a 2 CD set through the group’s record label, Seeland Records. This show was a personal favorite of...
